Gifts for New Baby and Big Sister

My lovely new friend just became a grandmother again.  Her new granddaughter was born on the last day of our sewing class at Sassy Southern Sewing School (read about the sewing school HERE and HERE).  I wanted to thank her for teaching a wonderful class at the sewing school, and to congratulate her for her new grandbaby.  My go-to baby gift is Baby Mitts & Caps.  The tutorial is available HERE.  The mitts and caps sew up really quick.

There is also a new big sister in my friend’s family.  When gifting for a new baby, I like to include the big sister or brother too – no reason to leave them out, especially when the perfect little girl gift is a Summer Surprise Dress.  The dress sews up super quick and can be made to coordinate with the Baby Mitts & Caps.

Both patterns use knit fabrics.  The blue floral jersey knit fabric was bought from Mabel Madison.  This fabric is amazing to work with and it washes up softer every time while still keeping the bright colors.  It is Pink Rosette in Blue made by Verhees.

The dress is the Summer Surprise Pattern by Sofilantjes.  This is a pattern that I have made very often – to see my other versions, look HERE and HERE.

The Baby Mitts Tutorial is featured HERE.  And the Baby Caps Tutorial is featured HERE.

I think the little dress and the little mitts & caps are perfect for the girls.

And don’t you think handmade gifts are most special? I do.

Baby Mitts and Caps for Baby Shower Gift

baby shower buttonIt is a pleasure to participate in the virtual baby shower for Jess at Gracious Threads.  This month, she is hosting a Baby Shower to celebrate her new baby boy.  There have been so many fun and inspirational posts all about baby stuff on her blog.  There are tutorials, pattern reviews and round ups, crafts to make, and all kinds of things for babies and new moms.

Today, I posted a Baby Mitt Tutorial HERE for making those cute mittens for little baby hands.  I shared the free pattern template and tutorial to make your own mittens for your baby or to give as a baby gift.

We gifted my daughter’s preschool teacher with a set of mitts and matching baby cap for the pending arrival of her baby boy.  The cap was made from Zaaberry Baby Hat tutorial found HERE.  The mitts and hat are in the organic knit fabric called Serengeti by Birch.
